"Using Son's Death To...": US First Lady Slams Report On Biden Age Concerns
US First Lady Jill Biden has forcefully refuted allegations regarding President Joe Biden's age and memory, criticizing the special counsel's report for politicizing their late son's death.
Jill Biden's comments were in reaction to a report by Special Counsel Robert Hur, where Hur accused then-private citizen Biden, 81, of deliberately mishandling classified documents but did not recommend charges.
However, the report included pointed remarks about Biden's mental state, mentioning he even forgot the year his son passed away.
In a mass email to supporters, Jill Biden expressed her shock and pain over the report's tone, emphasizing the continual impact of Beau Biden's 2015 death.
Despite recommendations against prosecution, Hur's report—which mentioned Beau 16 times—drew criticism for its unnecessary commentary on personal matters.
Jill Biden refuted the claims about Biden's competence, pointing to his track record and accomplishments as the President, including managing COVID-19, reviving the economy, creating jobs, lowering gas prices, and passing bipartisan legislation.
She celebrated his resilience, wisdom, and experience, arguing that at 81, his age is an asset, not a drawback.
